With the South Africa T20I series around the corner, Pandya brothers – Hardik and Krunal – are leaving no stone unturned to prepare themselves.
On Wednesday (September 11), Hardik and Krunal faced each other at the nets to hone their skills. After the practice session got over, Hardik shared a video where he was seen dominating his elder brother’s slow bowling.
While playing some effortless strokes, Hardik smashed one of the balls so hard that Krunal narrowly escaped from being hit on his head. He was also seen playing helicopter shot.
“Pandya vs Pandya in training. I think I won that round big bro @krunalpandya24 P.S: Sorry for almost knocking your head off,” Hardik wrote in the caption of the clip.
From watching the video, it seemed that Krunal was nowhere in the competition as the junior Pandya thrashed him all over the park.
But the story took a twist when the senior Pandya posted a video and trolled his younger brother for not uploading the delivery which completely bamboozled him.
“Hahaha it's all cool bro but why didn’t you upload this video? @hardikpandya7,” Krunal tweeted by sharing a video in which he outfoxed Hardik.
Hardik Pandya was rested from the recently held West Indies tour after the gruelling ICC Cricket World Cup and IPL 2019. The seam-bowling all-rounder had a significant workload to deal with in both the tournaments.
On the other hand, Krunal had a stellar T20I series against West Indies in which he picked up three wickets and scored 67 runs with a couple of valuable cameos at the fag end of the innings. For his all-round heroics, the 28-year-old was adjudged Player-of-the-Series as India whitewashed the defending champions 3-0 in the shortest format.
The Pandya brothers will be seen in action when India takes the field against South Africa in the first T20I at Dharamsala.
